A good friend of mine who also happens to be a collector of vintage Halloween items wrote yesterday about this item. Mark, I can't believe that someone (or 13 someones) bid this item up to $345. Can you please post something on your blog? This is a Bethany Lowe reproduction made out of resin. It's about an $80.00 piece. Someone got taken big time! I have this piece. The one on Ebay had a part missing as well. There is a pumpkin face that goes on the hook at the bottom. Remember, you can't be too careful these days when collecting anything. Research, befriend other collectors, build a library of reference works, etc. Do your homework so that you don't make a bad decision as the bidders on this piece apparently did.
